Communicating local knowledge and innovation

Documenting farmer innovation creates a new image of agricultural producers. In the paper "Communicating farmers' knowledge", Awa Faly Ba of IIED Afrique, the NGO that supports PROFEIS activities in West Africa, explains how PROFEIS and AGRIDAPE have collaborated to create and share important messages about local creativity in improving smallholder agriculture. AGRIDAPE is the French magazine on low-external-input and sustainable agriculture (LEISA) published in Senegal by IED Afrique.
